Henry Speaks for Himself by John Liney - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsJohn LineyComing Attractions 30 Dec 2013 1:01 PM

Here it is, our first preview of one of our Spring-Summer 2014 books that our supporters so generously backed on Kickstarter. Come February (we actually cranked this one out a little early!), with the release of Henry Speaks for Himself, Henry will join Barnaby and Charlie Brown in our roster of funny-looking bald-headed kids. These charming classic comics by John Liney, based on the popular comic strip created by Carl Anderson, have never been collected before, and our book, edited by David Tosh, gathers the best stories.

In our downloadable excerpt, containing one complete story, Henry has a most unusual day of work and play, none of which works out according to plan, as marbles, a shoe-shine box, a kite, a goldfish, and an overripe Limburger cheese present plenty of opportunities for hilarious disaster.

Stranger Than Life by M.K. Brown - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsMK BrownComing Attractions 26 Dec 2013 2:16 PM

Those quirky comics from the heyday of the National Lampoon. Those brilliantly skewed New Yorker and Playboy cartoons. Those hilarious strips in underground mags like Wimmin's Comix and Arcade. The animated shorts that weren't The Simpsons on The Tracey Ullman Show. Perhaps you've encountered the work of M.K. Brown somewhere (lucky you) or perhaps you've never seen it before. Either way, you're in for a treat, as we've gathered these obscure gems into the first ever retrospective volume of her hilarious work, Stranger Than Life: Cartoons and Comics 1970-2013, due out in February. It's what we do!

Get a taste of Brown's brilliance with our downloadable excerpt, featuring Billie Jean King, countertops, pants, aliens, upholstery, snakes, glue, monitor lizards, and some introductory words from Brown herself.

Cannon by Wallace Wood - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Wallace WoodpreviewsComing Attractions 19 Dec 2013 11:37 AM

BRRRT! CRACK! SPANG! RATAT! BRADAP! POW! SPLAT! WHUMP! BOOM! BADABALAM! VIP VIP VIP! KRUMF! BA-ROOM! These are the sounds of our downloadable 27-page excerpt of Wallace Wood's Cannon, and PLOP will be the sound of your jaw hitting the floor. Bullets fly, explosions blow stuff up, and a chiseled, square-jawed, killing-machine hero puts the hurt on the baddies in the name of the U.S. of A. Plus over half the pages also feature at least one panel of naked or partly-naked women. Just sayin'. It's Grade A unapologetic exploitation fare by one of comics' all-time greats, finally in a complete and definitive edition. Pre-order your copy now for February release!

These pages may look familiar to loyal readers of Peter Bagge's Hate Annual comic book, or maybe you haven't been keeping up with the latest tales of Buddy & Lisa's domestic "bliss." Either way, you'll be glad to know that those stories (most from out-of-print issues) are finally being compiled, along with a new 20-page concluding chapter, in the evocatively titled Buddy Buys a Dump. It'll be the first new Buddy Bradley collection to hit shelves in seven years when it's released in April, and you can pre-order it now!

Am I getting sick of making dorky Tammy Pierce Photoshop mashups every time we get a blurb from famous people? NEVER!

Nijigahara Holograph by Inio Asano - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsmangaInio AsanoComing Attractions 11 Dec 2013 4:36 PM

We're pleased to present the enigmatic prologue to Nijigahara Holograph by Inio Asano as a free, downloadable preview. After a flash of disparate images (butterflies, twin babies, a notebook, a tunnel, a headless animal, a falling or floating body), the scene opens in a hospital as a young man attends to his ailing father, then meets a mysterious old man outside who seems to know him. A couple of quick scene shifts — a man in a lonely apartment, a couple having sex, a man interviewing a woman — and we flash back to a sad but curious schoolgirl, a found corpse, a schoolyard confrontation, a spooky vision, and a heart-stopping incident. How do they all tie together? Why don't you pre-order the book and find out when it comes out in February?
